Today we're focused on the magic of Disney's first baby...elephant,
Dumbo and his 70th Anniversary release!It's hard for me to believe Dumbo is celebrating it's 70th anniversary! Time has flown by! Dumbo was one of my favorite movies when I was a little girl. It left a lasting impression when I first saw it in the movie theater. So, I am very excited about the 70th anniversary edition being released by Disney in September. We don't have to wait till September to order! Recently Disney opened up pre-orders on Amazon!
